TIME FOR CHANGE
By James C. Eakes
October 24, 2006
Frank Murkowski has experienced the consequences of a bullish,
somewhat arrogant & closed method of serving as our Governor
for the last 4 years. I believe Tony knowles and Ethan Berkowitz
will bring a fresh, experienced team to the Governor's office
that will represent the citizens of Alaska in an open, fair and
democratic manner. Sara Palin has not demonstrated her ability
to do this.
I have appreciated the efforts Don Young has made for our state.
However, there is no place in public office, one filled by the
voting public, for his public arrogance exhibited in recent years.
His unwillingness to defend his positions on issues with all
citizens of Alaska and to even acknowledge alternatives to his
philosophy is unacceptable.
These are the reasons I have Knowles/Bertkowitz and Diane Benson
signs on my truck and urge a vote for them.
